Hawaa Hawaai

Hawaa Hawaai Trailer

Hawaa Hawaai, released May 2014, is inspirational and has the feel good factor, with a message that says ‘dreams can come true’. Directed by Amole Gupte, it is reminiscent of Chak De India and Taree Zameen Par – also directed by Gupte.

This movie is about of a group of shantytown kids who come together to build a pair roller skates. After 14-year-old Arjun’s (Partho Gupte) father dies, he becomes the man of the house and sets out to make some money for the family. Working as a tea boy, he quickly sees how the wealthy side lives and sees a roller skating class. After this he dreams to become a champion roller skater.

However, Hawaa Hawaai is more than just a movie about roller-skating; it highlights the divide between rich and poor, it questions society’s boundaries, it shows if you want it enough, you can achieve your goal.

The soundtrack is equally as uplifting as the movie, and is definitely worth a listen even if you don’t watch the movie.
